Metro Continuing Education can trace its
origins to the night school for adults offered by Edmonton Public
Schools in 1891. Over the years, courses in English as a Second
Language, academics, business, computers and personal interest were
added, together with programs for youth and adults.
Today, Metro still offers courses and programs for people of all ages with our three program areas:
- Academic Success Programs provide part-time evening or weekend
high school upgrading for students and adult learners, Brain Booster
diploma exam preparation, Cool School for elementary and junior high
students and junior high and high school enrichment courses.
- Adult Continuing Education courses provide adult learners with
hundreds of daytime, evening and weekend courses for personal enrichment
and career advancement. Metro also offers Custom & Corporate
- The English Language Institute provides English instruction, through a variety of programs, to hundreds of newcomers to Canada.
Metro is a customer service-oriented educational institution
committed to providing flexible and diverse learning opportunities to
students of all ages and needs.
At Metro Continuing Education, our vision is to excel in providing
outstanding learner-focused educational experiences dedicated to
academic, personal and professional growth. We will build community and
foster partnerships to promote lifelong learning opportunities for
students of all ages.
